The Planning Committee is responsible for planning issues, applications and consultations with other bodies such as Highways. The Committee normally meets every 3 weeks throughout the year.


During the coronavirus outbreak our planning committee will not be meeting face-to-face but will continue to consider planning applications by meeting virtually using Zoom. The agenda with a link to the meeting will be posted below in the week before the meeting.


Liskeard Town Council places great importance on pre-planning consultations and is seeking to encourage developers/agents to consult with its Planning Committee at the pre-application stage. We want to work in partnership with developers/agents to achieve the best possible developments for Liskeard for the benefit of all concerned.

The responsibility for all local planning decisions rests with Cornwall Council. However, the Town Council is a statutory consultee, whose views on behalf of the community are taken into consideration on all planning applications.
